Getting Accepted into the Drexel MBA Degree Program

Updated on January 17, 2012

LeBow College of Business Enrollment Details

Drexel University is located in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Students seeking to get an MBA degree can apply to several programs offered by Drexel through its LeBow College of Business. The program describes itself as competitive and has requirements that include the GMAT test, GPA scores, work experience and career goals and achievements. Those seeking to get an advanced degree in business at Drexel should be aware of the various different MBA programs. It is important to choose a program that fits the applicant's qualifications and professional educational objectives. Those who complete a degree program at Drexel can improve their chances of a successful career in the business world.


According to the school, the MBA programs are designed for experienced business managers with GMAT scores between 570 and 740. According to TestMasters, the recent scores of 570 are the 55th percentile. This is not as competitive as many of the top-tier schools. So if you are an experienced professional who just happens to not be so naturally good at the skills tested on the GMAT, Drexel might be a good fit for you. You can still get a popular MBA here while not necessarily having a superior score.

Of course, you still need to score better than half of the people who take the GMAT. Refer to the website for information, resources and tips on improving your score.


Like the typical program, you will also need an undergraduate degree. This does not have to be a business degree, but that could potentially help in getting accepted. Nonetheless, many students with science and engineering degrees can get accepted and excel in a Drexel MBA program.

Work Experience:

Advanced business degrees are generally designed for those with actual work experience. Drexel and the LeBow College of Business will look at both the amount and type of experience you have. The programs are primarily designed for those with at least mid-level management experience. This means that the typical student has more than five years of full-time work experience.

Program Options:

About the best thing you can do for assessing your options is to use the school's comparison tool (see Resources). You will learn that there are full-time and part-time options with varying schedules and qualification requirements. Students can also study in Wilmington, Delaware (at the DuPont company) if they are working in that area. There is even an MBA Anywhere program that is almost entirely online.


Use the "Graduate Admissions" page if you are ready to apply for admission. Note that you will also need lettters of recommendation, an admissions essay and a resume. The interview may also determine whether you are accepted into a program.
